Moving to Las Vegas? Just looking for a swank Sin City crash pad and money is no object? Then you have to see Jack Sommer’s 25,000 square foot Bitcoin Mansion, which features walk-out access to five golf course fairways, a 120-ton air conditioner cooling tower and a 2,000 square foot guest house where Playboy Bunny Anna Nicole Smith shot a “movie.”
The asking price? A cool $7.85 million, payable in the world’s most exciting cryptocurrency — about 9,566 Bitcoins.
Now, before pooh pooh the price consider this — “This house was an exercise in how many cool details we could put in,” says Sommer.
And, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Bitcoin mansion’s amenities just keep coming — there is a secret garden and even the live-in servant quarters have Jacuzzis.
Perhaps simply working there would be a serious life upgrade.

There are no transaction fees and no need to give your real name. More merchants are beginning to accept them: You can buy webhosting services, pizza or even manicures —CNN Money
Sommer is thought to be marketing his Bitcoin mansion to international buyers, jet setters, the kind of people who travel with a full staff, including a chauffeur, chef and nanny.
“I think it would definitely be the largest real estate transaction done in Bitcoins that I’ve heard of,” said Julian Tosh, a bitcoin-merchant. “There are a bunch of people who have bitcoins, and they’re dying for a place to spend it.”
So, why is Sommer selling his Bitcoin mansion? His seven kids have all grown up and moved out — the multimillionaire is looking to downsize…
